This following code just allowed you to entered numbers only (No alphabetics or any special characters) :

Private Sub TextBox1_KeyPress(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyPressEventArgs) Handles TextBox1.KeyPress
    If (Microsoft.VisualBasic.Asc(e.KeyChar) < 48) _
              Or (Microsoft.VisualBasic.Asc(e.KeyChar) > 57) Then
            e.Handled = True
    End If
    If (Microsoft.VisualBasic.Asc(e.KeyChar) = 8) Then
            e.Handled = False
    End If
End Sub

This following code just allowed you to entered strings / alphabetics only (no numbers or any special characters):

Private Sub TextBox2_KeyPress(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyPressEventArgs) Handles TextBox2.KeyPress
        If (Microsoft.VisualBasic.Asc(e.KeyChar) < 65) _
            Or (Microsoft.VisualBasic.Asc(e.KeyChar) > 90) _
            And (Microsoft.VisualBasic.Asc(e.KeyChar) < 97) _
            Or (Microsoft.VisualBasic.Asc(e.KeyChar) > 122) Then
            'Allowed space
            If (Microsoft.VisualBasic.Asc(e.KeyChar) <> 32) Then
                e.Handled = True
            End If
        End If
        ' Allowed backspace
        If (Microsoft.VisualBasic.Asc(e.KeyChar) = 8) Then
            e.Handled = False
        End If
End Sub

lets talk about powerfull code of you. great man

To make text box to accept only numbers, in key press event of that textbox u can code like this


If Char.IsDigit(e.KeyChar) = False And Char.IsControl(e.KeyChar) = False Then
e.Handled = True
MsgBox("Please enter valid number ")
End If


i think u can mannage other one..

Use the following code..
#Region "TextBox Events"

Private Sub txtFinRefNo_KeyPress(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyPressEventArgs) Handles txtFinRefNo.KeyPress
Try
If Char.IsLetterOrDigit(e.KeyChar) = False And Char.IsControl(e.KeyChar) = False Then
e.Handled = True
End If
Catch ex As Exception
ShowException(ex.Message, MESSAGEBOX_TITLE, ex)
End Try
End Sub
#End Region
